Seller Insight We’ve lived here for 10 years and have made some changes, including remodelling the barn end of the house. This created a large dining and bar area which is perfect for when we are entertaining, particularly at Christmas when we light the fire and it becomes the hub of the house.” “Priory Cottage is set on an ancient walking route and there are plenty of rural walks to be enjoyed, either along the riverside or in the woodland. The Bluebell Forest is just along the road and Sunday’s are made for a long, morning walk with a break for lunch in the pub on the way back.” “We have dedicated a large area of the land as a natural haven for wildlife and have planted lots of wildflowers. The sheep keep the grass down in the summer and the lavender attracts bumblebees. When the trees and garden are in full bloom, they provide a natural cover and we can’t see anyone else, it’s very peaceful. The outside space includes a tennis court, huge chess set and gazebo but perhaps our favourite spot would be the hot tub set up on the hill. We like to relax here with a gin and tonic in the evening and enjoy the great view down into the valley.” “There is a strong sense of community, particularly focussed around the village hall which hosts regular activities. The village Facebook page is a hive of information, including updates on wandering horses or when a gate has been left open and the sheep are on the road!” “We converted the space above the garage into a yoga room. It has a beautiful view onto the back garden and we can watch the birds and hear the birdsong when we’re doing yoga, it’s very relaxing.” We are moving to be closer to our business and we will miss the sense of peace and tranquility provided by Priory Cottage, as well as the rural setting and the wildlife, including our resident owls and woodpeckers.”*

BROMSGROVE Located close to the junction of the M5 and M42 and only 14 miles from Birmingham with the Lickey, Clent and Waseley Hills on it’s doorstep, Bromsgrove is a thriving town with plenty to see and do. Formerly a centre for both the wool and nail making industries, it is now at the heart of a successful commercial and industrial area. As well as a bustling town centre with numerous shops and eateries, Bromsgrove boasts a rich architectural heritage which is evidenced by buildings like the Parish Church of St John, Grafton Manor and Perry Hall, former home of the famed poet A. E. Houseman, to whom a local trail and town centre statue are dedicated. The popular North Worcestershire villages of Blackwell and Barnt Green are a short drive away adding to the mix of services that may be found within the vicinity providing village shopping. Bromsgove itself is well served with a recently improved pedestrian high street, supermarkets, professional services, and a wide mix of eating establishments. Destination gastro pubs may be found on the outskirts of Bromsgrove and the town is well placed for country walks and rural recreation. If schooling is a priority, Bromsgrove caters for a range of provision to suit a child’s needs. The local primary school feeds children into the senior schools at North and South Bromsgrove. There is a choice of further primary schools in the outlying areas. The independent sector is also well served with Bromsgrove School retaining a reputation of international repute. Further afield highly regarded schools may be found in the county of Worcestershire including both The Royal Grammar School and King’s School. The King Edward Schools are within the Birmingham conurbation. Additionally, the Worcester and Birmingham canal runs close to Bromsgrove and it’s an ideal destination for numerous leisure activities. Winding through the countryside, the canal starts at the River Severn in Worcester and passes through Tardebigge locks, the longest flight of navigable locks in the country, with 30 locks climbing 217 feet (66m) before reaching Birmingham.
